A Collect to Press On Even in the Face of Suffering

Lord Jesus, who went steadfastly toward the cross, give us courage to move forward, even when it must result in suffering, that our fear would not prevent us from doing good and you would be glorified by the choices we make for the love of you and our fellow creatures, through you who humbled yourself and was glorified by the Father and Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.’ – Luke 9:51
